Why can't I create a new repository

When I login to bitbucket and click on Create -> Repository I can't see the navigation or enter anything that lets me create a new repository.
Advanced Setting doesn't open

What i see:


also there are a lot of errors in the console for example:


GET[HTTP/2 403 Forbidden 1136ms]


What's the problem here?

Hi @Sternschanze ,

welcome to the atlassian community!

Please check that your user has write permission within the workspace. If so, check branch permissions at workspace level.

For further information check this guide

Hope this helps,


Greetings Fabio!

It is my own workspace, so I have write permissions as "admin".

What are / where can I find "branch permissions at workspace level"?

On many pages the page-navigation is not visible like in the screenshot.

Until yesterday it has always worked the same way without any problems for at least 65 repositories I created.

Tried it on linux with chromium and firefox and on iOS.

Always the same behaviour. Seems like a Bug to me

Mmmm, if you was able until yesterday so something changed on your side.

Branch permissions can't impact your current issue. Please could you check if license is ok?

Didn't change anything.

I found another error that said it was an issue with localization.
I switched from German to English and now it's working!

There is obviously a bug with German localization


I have the same issue.
I check my permissions, I am admin on the workplace. I ask a friend whom I share the workplace (he is also admin) to try a repository creation. It's fine for him.

I switch from french to english, it's working now

I have the same issue in my Bitbucket account, some users reported that cannot create repositories, and they could do it several days ago. The users that reported this issue are not administrators, but are part from a group whose permission enables them to do it (see picture attached)


Thanks for sharing it @Sternschanze
